14 Days

1971 Topps #183

Two weeks(!) from today, baseball returns for real.  No more of this Grapefruit and Cactus stuff.  And, on baseball's opening day, the New York Mets head south on Interstate 95 to meet the Washington Nationals for a 4:05 p.m. first pitch.

In honor of the 14-day mark, we present you with the greatest No. 14 in Mets annals.  Hodges' uniform is one of just four uniform numbers the Mets have officially retired, along with 37 (Stengel), 41 (Seaver) and 42 (Jackie).



  1. Love that card! More importantly, after this winter these next two weeks can't go by quick enough...
